The Tony Volpentest Story
Tony Volpentest was born without hands and feet a condition so rare it does not have a name. Doctors said he would never be able to walk without prosthetics or special accommodations. Tony proved them all wrong when he started walking at fifteen months old, and went on to do everything any other kid could do ride a bike, play basketball, learn to write. In high school he took up the least likely sport for someone without feet track. Through sheer will, determination, and perseverance he went from last place in every race to the pinnacle of his sport becoming a Paralympic gold medalist and world-record holder a tour de force who dominated the sprint distances. Photography by Chris Hamilton Photography Tony s incredible story is more than one about sports. It is about the potential of the human spirit to reach places we never thought possible. It is about finding the gifts in life s inevitable roadblocks.
